An impoved version of the older Kims Knee High coneflowers Red Knee High has deeper colored more vivid flowers but the same shorter plant habit. Actually I learned that Red Knee High is a sport of Kims Knee High. While I have both in my garden and like them both I do prefer the more vivid coloring of Red Knee High.

Do you have your Red Knee High in part shade? Mine is in full sun and they faded. I was disappointed.

The Red Knee High is really a very deep vidid color as it starts to flower. Given time the flowers do fade some and at the very end I would say both Red Knee High and Kims Knee High end up the same color.

Ok, That fine, I was just wondering if you thought it might be getting too much sun. But if they all fade then it's just normal right? Blinking
